I've never heard of the guy but I'm sure his name is pronounced koontz (like the famous writer).

You must be referring to Rusty Kuntz...#47 with the Sox.

Personally I always liked the name of the Phillies catcher of the early 60's, Clay Dalrymple or the Astros shortstop of the mid 60's, Julio Gotay (pronounced Go-tie).

KC has a second baseman named Ruben Gotay. He went 2-5 with 4 RBI's against us on the second to last game of the season.

It's not a baseball name, but my sophomoric mind has always been partial to the old NASCAR guy, Dick Trickle.

How about former Cubs coach Dick Pole?

I'm still partial to the name of the old Brookly Dodger Van Lingle Mungo.

I remember Rusty Kuntz, he is right up there with other White Sox greats like Wayne Norhagen and Bill Nahrodney.:(:

My favorite name was a third baseman that bounced around a few teams named Mickey Klutts.

I remember him too. Don't forget Jim Brezeale. The slowest base runner I have ever seen.

Wow, this place is in classic offseason form. The PB&J thread, Star Wars/Trek, another beer thread, a few top 10's & now this one again! It's going to take forever for pitchers & catchers to report.:o:
Where's that tomato thread?:tongue:

And yes, will Spring Training ever get here?

As far as names go, well it's a nickname, but one of the best was Spook Jacobs, an infielder with the A's in the 50's.

Rusty had a very long looping swing, couldn't hit a curve ball to save his soul.

Peace brother, if we can't whine in the off season, what's the point? That's half the fun of being a fan. Unfortunately, the other half is winning, which we haven't seen too much of lately. So, ... cry away! :bandance: :supernana: :bandance:

We can't leave out Johnny Dickshot, who led the White Sox in stolen bases and tied for the lead in homers (4) in 1945. A seminal player indeed.

I think im the only one to think this,but i always thought that "Albert Pujols" was a hysterical name. Only for a while. Only because it sounds like "Poo-Holes" :redneck

Poo - holes - that's just funny!
